Deal Could Send Federal Prisoners To County Jail 8-20-2010

Midland County could soon be seeing the arrival of federal prisoners and an influx of cash.
Under a proposed contract with the U.S. Marshals Service, the county jail would hold federal prisoners for about $50 a day. Published reports said that's almost double the rate for prisoners from other counties.
The deal would include a separate transportation agreement, which officials are currently working on.
Prisoners would stay in the Midland County Jail until their cases are adjudicated.
The new video arraignment system at the jail helped seal the deal, according to the reports.
The deal is expected to be inked by early September.
